A new research conducted in Italy revealed one in the ten women gave up recreational activities due to urinary incontinence.

Italian researchers interviewed 700 women, one in seven revealed they suffered from incontinence; this is backed up by another research from the British Journal of Sports Medicine who says that one in two women suffered from urinary incontinence at some point in their lives.

Researchers believe figures would be higher if women going through menopause were included in the research.

The study concluded that urinary incontinence affects women’s quality of life in many aspects, but what concerns the researchers is the fact that only few women search for treatment.

Researchers suggested women should be given more information on urinary incontinence and offered remedial support and treatment.
